Week Two

I can't believe I have been here for a week!! The time is going so quickly, the time to go home will come too soon!!
I have been to a different shopping centre every day and haven't been to the biggest one yet. It's the biggest shopping centre in the world. They also have the tallest building in the world.
Went to the aquarium at Atlantis today and had a lovely lunch in a French restaurant there when we finished. I took quite a few photos at the aquarium.
Went to a scrap shop but they don't have anything I don't have (shame) and a lot of their stock is pretty old. The shop is so beautiful and clean and tidy. Someone going around with a mop all the time! They can certainly come and live at my house!!! Lol!!
Saturday we are going to another place that has a market and we'll have dinner somewhere. Sunday we are going to the gold and spice souks.
It is raining here at the moment...it's their rainy season but, doesn't rain anything like we are used to. The temp is perfect for me but the locals have jumpers and coats on?????? I think it got to 23 today.
There are heaps of expensive cars here! All racing around like lunatics, lol!!
Nobody gets out of bed early so it's great to go to the shops at 10am when they open because there's no-one there. James starts school at 8am and finishes at 2.30. I still can't get used to the fact he goes to school on a Sunday.
Off to watch a movie now.
